Video: New lava flow on the Big Island

BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - Geologists say they have no way of knowing when the latest activity at Kilauea Volcano will end.

This, after fissure like activity began over the weekend.

Located west, southwest of Pu'u 'O'o Crater, this activity comes after the floor of the crater dropped at least 370 feet. Research geologists say it's very similar to an event that began in January of 1997 at Kilauea when fissure like activity happened in this same area near Napau Crater.
